Agenda New Business, Mock Google Tech Interview

Since Jan 4th is so close to the holiday, I am moving this one meeting to the 2nd Wednesday instead.  We will resume our normal scheduling next month.


New business - Grace Hopper opportunity, anything from the group.

"Mock" Google technical interview. - A volunteer will be given a coding task.  The interview will talk through their design decisions.  Using C++, write code to implement the design.  Then the volunteer and the rest of the group will discuss how to make it better - faster, more robust, scale able, etc.

Bring an idea for a coding task.  For example, one of the tasks mentioned in the video is an app that can take a string of characters with no spaces and insert spaces in the appropriate places (e.g. "brownfoxjumpedover" to "brown fox jumped over").

See everyone on the 11th!!

    Apparently Google does some sort of grammatical checks while trying to figure out where to put spaces.
    HITHERExxxxx will be translated according to what makes grammatical sense for the given xxxxx.
    HITHEREEVERONE = Hi There Everyone.
    HITHEREPLEASE = Hit Here Please
    But when xxxxx is nonsensical, Google is not consistent with its translation.

      LOL. Wait are you saying "Great meeting looking for" or "Great meeting looking forward"?? ;)

    Hmmmm... Isn't the answer ambiguous? Technically, couldn't one say "brown fox jump Ed over" as if to command a brown fox to assist Ed over an obstacle?... And don't even get me started on the use of acronyms. For example, maybe I'm warning my close friend that an ox with West Nile Fever has just jumped over an obstacle that has cleared its path towards us: "Bro WNF ox jumped over!!!" ...So, hey Google Execs, do I got the job or what? :)

      I watched it after my last post. I thought it was pretty decent. If I had to describe it in one sentence: "How not to blow a technical interview, but no promises you'll get the job".
